I had to hammer out the broken star wrench tip then progressively drill the head off of the bolt. Once accomplished I could remove the door. I used a standard replacement screw I case I ever have to replace the door again. The manufacturer should use a fastener other than a star head bolt.

A plastic tab, 1 of 3, on the plastic replacement vent grill had to be hand filed to make it fit in the slot on the microwave. The other 2 were fine. It is an obvious quality control issue from the manufacturer's injection mold or inspection process that allowed the extra plastic to remain on the tab.

Charcoal Filter Replacement

This is an under the counter microwave. Simply removed the two screws holidng the vent grille on top of the unit, lift out the old charcoal filter, clean the vent fan exit surfaces then replace the filter and put the vent grille back. Be careful to not drop either of the two screws after one is installed as you will have to take the grill off and start the screw installation again unless you have a magnetic to retrieve the dropped screw. An easy five minutes at most to change.
